Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden currently ranks ahead of President Donald Trump in six key states – all six states in which the president was victorious in the 2016 elections according to a new poll.
The survey, conducted by Survey Monkey/Axios, found that former Vice President Trump leads in Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia.
Biden’s largest lead over the president among these six states is in Wisconsin, where he currently has a 12-point lead. According to the survey, 55 percent of Wisconsin respondents indicated that they would vote for Biden, while 43 percent of respondents sided with Trump.
Survey Monkey/Axios based its results on a 28-day moving average with polls conducted from October 1 to 28 among 4,569 likely voters in the state. The survey showed a margin of error of plus or minus 2 points in Wisconsin.
Biden’s second largest lead in these six states is in Michigan, where the survey gave him an eight-point lead. Fifty-three percent of Michigan respondents said they would vote for the former vice president, compared to 45 percent of respondents who voted for Trump.
The October 1-28 survey surveyed 7,541 likely voters in Michigan and reported a range or error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
In both Arizona and Pennsylvania, the survey found that Biden is ahead by six points. Fifty-two percent of respondents in these two states said they would vote for Biden, compared to 46 percent who sided with Trump.
According to the survey, 5,687 likely voters were polled in Arizona, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points – while in Pennsylvania 10,599 likely voters were polled, with the survey showing a margin of error of plus or minus 1.5 percentage points.
In North Carolina, the poll polled 8,720 likely voters and found that Biden was only five points ahead – 52 percent said they would vote for him, while 47 percent supported the president. The North Carolina poll showed a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
And in Georgia, Biden’s lead over Trump was within the error margin of plus or minus 2 points – 50 percent said they would vote for the former vice president, while 48 percent voted for Trump.
During the 2016 presidential election, Trump won each of these six states against Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton to eventually go on to win the presidency.
The latest results come less than a week before election day, and several other nationwide polls show that Biden has a lead over Trump.
The average of several national polls conducted by RealClearPolitics shows that Biden has a 7.4 point lead.
